BOSTON (AP) - Kenneth Feinberg, an attorney who managed the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, will design and administrator of a new fund to help people affected by the Boston Marathon bombing. 

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino say the One Fund Boston is intended as a central place to gather donations for bombing victims.

Feinberg has also administered compensation funds for victims of the 2010 BP Gulf Coast oil spill and mass shootings at Virginia Tech and Aurora, Colo. The Brockton, Mass., native is chairman of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation board.
